9780133119428: Classroom Assessment: Principles and Practice for Effective Standards-Based Instruction

With a new focus on 21st century skills, Classroom Assessment: Principles and Practice for Effective Standards-Based Instruction, 6/e shows teachers how to create high-quality assessments of every kind. Taking a non-technical approach, it looks at the role of assessment in teaching and how it can influence teaching decisions. Exploring formative, summative, performance-based and non-cognitive assessment, it pinpoints how to establish credible learning targets and select assessments that fairly measure those goals. Suggestions for effective practice accompany each assessment technique. Examples, case studies, and teacher interviews illustrate assessment techniques in action.

 

From Reviews of the Book

 

“The text goes into more depth about targets/standards, formative assessment and special education assessment than my current text. . . . I think the chapters about writing actual test items are exceptional.  The examples, the content, and the explanations are all clear and practical.”

--Kristen Bjork, University of Nevada - Las Vegas

 

“In selection of this text when I was initially choosing, I liked the in-depth coverage of performance assessments and rubrics, I also liked the level of the language . . . this book was informative but an easy read.”

--Patricia A. Lutz, Kutztown University
